The 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCS/PMA (10GBASE-R) is a no charge LogiCORE™ which provides a XGMII interface to a 10 Gigabit Ethernet MAC and implements a 10.3125 Gbps serial single channel PHY providing a direct connection to a XFP using the XFI electrical specification or SFP+ optical module using SFI electrical specification. This optical module can be connect to a 10GBASE-SR, -LR or –ER optical link.
The demand for 10G Ethernet is being driven in the data center as internet data traffic continues to grow. LAN application include Storage Area Networking (SAN), aggregation of 1G Ethernet links, and switch to switch links in the data center, equipment room or in different buildings.
